pitted a national law against a 2004 arizona voter registration bill. the case explores the extent of state powers against the controversial backdrop of voting restrictions. arizona's proposition 200 requires state residents to provide either a driver's license, passport, birth certificate or physical proof of citizenship before they can vote. but an existing federal law requires only a sworn statement of citizenship on a voter registration form. supporters say the arizona measure cuts down on voter fraud by keeping noncitizens from voting. but opponents argue the law unfairly tarring hes minorities, immigrants, and the elderly. the case is only the most recent dispute between arizona and the federal government related to immigration issues. over the summer, the supreme court upheld part of a top state law that allowed police to check for immigration papers. other states, including alabama, georgia, kansas and tennessee, have similar laws on the books and a number of other states are also considering comparable measures. the obama administration supports the challenge to the arizon

clinton, who signed that into law say that d.o.m.a. should be overturned and senator rob portman is citing his familiarity with this issue, his son is gay. how do you think this is going to play out in the 2014 midterms and then subsequently 2016 general election? >> well, alex, we've seen a clear shift in public opinion on this issue over the last ten years. it's been quite dramatic. all sorts of polls now, including the reuter's poll last week shows that the public supports gay marriage even civil unions. even in the south, the majority supports gay marriage or civil unions together. democrats are united on this issue. they say it's a big winner, especially among younger voters, and there's a real sort of active debate within the republican party about how to play this. there's a lot of people saying we've got to stop emphasizing these social issues because they are not working in our favor. however, if you're going to have a divisive 2016 primary, rick santorum is going to want to talk about that and that could really hurt them. >> do you think that will be the case in 2016? if you look

i see this issue. first off, starbucks is in compliance with the law that he is proposing. and secondarily, our business is really based on customization. and that customization is one of the reasons why we've been successful because people are able to customize their own beverage. i think americans and adults are old enough and mature enough to make their own decisions with regard to the customerization. we will comply with the law one way or the other. but the way the law was proposed, it did not cover what we do. most of our drinks are with milk, not with sugar. >> with milk, not with sugar. all right, let me ask you about that. there was a study, 180,000 obesity deaths in america, i'm sorry, worldwide, 22,000 in the united states can be linked to sugary drinks. that is a stunning number. so we looked at starbucks and i have to admit, there are drinks at starbucks i love but it means foregoing a meal. 57 570 calories, 80 grams of sugar. so coke is getting slaughtered. but don't you feel that you kind of have a problem, too? >> that particular beverage that you just talk
(vo)while law enforcement in california was cracking down police in new york were told to go in the other direction. in september the police commissioner issued this order "a crime will not be charged to an individual who is requested or compelled to engage in the behavior that results in the public display of majijuana". that trick that hakeem jeffery showed us... >>they take something out, now its in public display, the handcuffs go on, these young men are run through the system. (vo)it's no longer allowed and never should have been. which means that if many of the stories we heard are true, "searched me found a bag of weed" "he took it out of my back pocket" "they didn't recover it from my hand, they recovered it from my cigarette pack" (vo)most of the people we met should never have been arrested. once again we asked the nypd to talk to us and again they declined. it wasn't surprising; if we'd learned anything, it's that america's marijuana laws are a conflicted, unequally enforced mess, where one state's entrepreneur is the federal government's f
gun laws, but yet you still had the tragedy in connecticut. so democrats just have to seize it. they have to move the this very quickly. congress is going to be going on a two week recess, and then democrats are going to have to move this bill and i think move it quickly or it could get weaker as it goes along, and then, of course, the president's going to have to get involved and push the house to do something. jon: also worth noting in newtown where the shooting took place the application for gun permits jumped significantly in the weeks and months after the shooting. so it sounds like the senate is just maybe far left or somewhat to the left of the population op this thing they're trying -- on this thing they're trying to get passed. >> the key is going to be the background checks. if schumer can get a republican, they're going to be able to claim victory. but if they don't get the background checks, democrats were calling that the sweet spot of this gun violence movement. and it's going to be a tough spot for the gun control activists. do they support a bill that is relativ

changed that. gay marriage, he changed that up in new york. they went ahead and changed the laws on the guns. in colorado, they did it. they changed the gun laws. and so at this point, if we can't get the federal government to do it i mean, you know with the gerrymandering, we are not going to get anything until 2014 when we might be able to get some of these people out of the government, out of the federal government. hopefully rally the democrats to come back to the poles and actually --ls and actually -- i don't know what we can do about that. so at this point, you know, until 2014, you know, we are not going to be able to get these people out of the government to change these laws. >> bill: you make a lot of since, julie anne. first of all, it's clear. we do need a federal statute because not all the 50 states are ever going to ban the sale of these weapons. as long as they can be bought and sold in one state, then they will filter out and be able to get out into every other state. it's just the way gun trafficking works. in the meantime, the ch
that if this becomes law, it will keep guns out of the hands of people who should not have them. it will reduce violent crime. it will save lives. we know that's true because in states that already require background checks on private sales, the rate of women murdered by an intimate partner armed with a gun is 38% lower than in states that don't have such background checks. the rate of firearm assaults including attempted murders is 17% lower. so there's no doubt that requiring background checks for all gun sales saves lives and there's no doubt that the american people support it. the only question is whether congress will have the courage to do the right thing or whether they will allow more innocent people, including innocent children, to be gunned down. it has been 97 days since newtown. in that time, we estimate that more than 3,000 americans have been murdered with guns. almost none of the victims generated national headlines. but each murder was a tragedy for the victim's family and for the community. if congress does nothing, another 12,000 people will be murdered with guns this year alone. we

that a u.s.-led invasion that was not justified, not in self defense goes forward. international law matters. the u.n. is not irrelevant. >> citing international law in those days could make you a laughing stock on television, but janine garofalo hung in there, she was ridiculed mercilessly. the prowar world, including republicans and democrats tried to turn her into a lefty hollywood caricature. none of them have ever apologized, even though they now know that she was right and the president of the united states was wrong and his highly trained foreign policy team and war policy team was wrong. >> the problem here is that there will always be some uncertainty about how quickly he can acquire nuclear weapons, but we don't want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud. >> we all remember that howard dean was right about the invasion of iraq and michael moore was right. and when michael moore won an oscar in 2003, in his acceptance speech he spoke of a president, quote, sending us to war for fictitious reasons. and he was booed in hollywood by a large segment of the oscar audience in tha
